PAMELIA, N.Y. (WWNY) - Police raided a woman’s hotel room and vehicle late last week and allegedly found cash, methamphetamine, heroin, and a stun gun.

Members of the Metro-Jefferson Drug Task Force say they searched 35 year old Jamie Pierce's room at the Fort Drum Studio Tel on State Route 37 in the town of Pamelia on Friday.

They say they searched her and her vehicle after they located both at the U Store self-storage facility on Murrock Circle in Watertown.

Seized were about $3,400, about 340 grams of crystal meth, 11.5 grams of heroin, digital scales, packaging material, and an electric stun gun.

Police say they obtained a search warrant based on an undercover investigation.

Pierce was charged with second-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and two counts of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

She was arraigned in Watertown city court Monday morning and is being held in Jefferson County jail without bail.

Police say more charges are pending as they continue to investigate.
